I just fancy a change of focus.

I'll jump right in with Great Portland Street - I think I'm entitled to do that, with it being beyond the autumn equinox, but before Halloween?

Any takers?

End of the line. grin Thanks all for some great play.

Wonders if anyone would dare start another....shock

We were in London 10 days ago and as we went to Camden on Sunday we had to go to the real Mornington Crescent station.

We have pictures. Dh was practically wetting himself!!

Cripes again. Some very daring play and very nearly at the end of the thread. I'll hold my nerve and throw a Wentworth's Dibble to

Hounslow East

Cripes, Albert, that really was close. Nearly had us all befrankled there.

I'm having minor palpitations over that, so will keep things simple and just say Latimer Road (under Norton's post-2012 terms).

There's only one possible move after that Avogadro's Variation to Alperton.

I think you've been overlooking the obvious here. A double lateral finagle to

Green Park

Home Straight now folks

I fancy one last diagonal shit to Tottenham. Court. Road.

Olivegirl Tue 18-Feb-14 14:38:26

I can see where this is going, but the wrong move on the "straight line block" will have the game disrupted beyond repair!

OK I think a straightforward Slip-and-slide to Ruislip is what is needed now.

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Mon 17-Feb-14 14:18:51

Hmm. The options are quite limited at the moment, but (reflecting on the Dundee Agreement of 1927) I'll go for

Tooting Broadway

FuckingWankwings Mon 17-Feb-14 10:07:30

Gosh, I thought the end might be in sight, but not with a Parker's going on!

I'll have to call in one of my Hambletons and make a half-bound argyle over to White City.

flamingtoaster Sun 16-Feb-14 22:26:59

Gosh I'd love to go and see ISIHAC - how inspirational!

Parker's Embellished Twist to Bank.

There was a guide in the programme to the rules of MC, but I haven't had time to read it yet. So for now, I'll stick with Blackwood's Convention to


MooncupGoddess Sat 15-Feb-14 16:33:14

How exciting, Maud! You must pass on some tips.

I had an excellent Valentine's move lined up last night but then the site went down angry

So I'll just have to limp to Aldgate pace D'Annunziato.

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Fri 14-Feb-14 11:56:18

Oh dear. I had fallen off the thread. We went to see ISIHAC last night and saw some inspirational play. Emboldened by that, I am going to Bend It Like Brooke-Taylor and aim for
